Engineers are working to reconnect dozens of homes left without power after overnight thunder storms swept through the region.

UK Power Networks has been called to deal with a loss of electricity in areas around High Common and Langmere, near Dickleburgh, Starston and Stradbroke.

The company said it was also working to reconnect people following reports of power cuts Wortwell and homes in the Botesdale area.

It said: "Engineers in our control room have switched some customers power back on. To get everyone's power back on we may need to attend to investigate and make repairs. If we aren't currently in contact with you by phone or in person at your property, please call us on 08003163105 which is free from landlines and mobiles."
